She has no paralysis. She is getting increasingly more violent, trying to bite my Dad, me, nurses. Twists Dad's fingers until they bruise, slapping me. Very agitated - balling up sheets, ripping off her clothes. She is on hospice and they have started Ativan .5 mg twice a day, but SNF is reluctant to give it. This is so hard on my Dad (95 y.o.), he is still very alert, active, drives, etc. I would like to know if this is common with stroke patients and any suggestions? Thanks!
